Question about ASUS Computers & Internet
There is a FN + Key (F9 for me) Hotkey to disable the elan touchpad on ASUS Laptops.
This might be the problem if someone activated it by accident.
Also the correct drivers might be missing.

I had issue with my Elan touchpad and my solution after a bunch of head ache was to shut down computer, unplug, and pull the battery out. After doing so I touched the touchpad while computer is off and the power button. Then put battery back in and started up and it was solved... Magic! It worked for my problem (Touchpad was not even showing up in device manager computer didn't think it had one, it wouldn't even work when I booted into Linux) There must of been some really weird charge on the capacitor so this allowed it to discharge. Think of it as hitting the reset button.
And of course make sure your touchpad is enabled in the bios and the touchpad off button is not set. Also check touchpad settings in your mouse settings section to.
